TO Nui is a spun silk thread ideal for sewing, quilting and embroidery. It can be used for both hand work and machine work. The spun silk has a soft sheen. 2 plies are twisted for optimal strength to a thickness of 2/60 NM (30 wt). The glossy, slightly pearly texture lends itself beautifully to surface designs like quilting, free motion embroidery, applique, top stitching or outlining. ITO Nui will give strong seams to sewing projects and is a sustainable alternative to polyester thread. Available in 64 colors.
